Boyhood Home of Carl Perkins

Boyhood Home of Carl Perkins

The legendary Carl Perkins was the King of Rockabilly and author of the song "Blue Suede Shoes."

His boyhood home is located along highway TN78 on the south side of Tiptonville, TN. Over the last decade, the area has been transformed into the city's visitor center with the addition of an old Illinois Central Caboose and a replica train station. TN78 has been renamed the Carl Perkins Highway. Perkins was born in Tiptonville on April 9, 1932.
